Final Crisis #2 Review

Recently reviewed by me at CBR: Final Crisis #2, about which I write the following sentences: "The whole issue has that dream-like quality or, more accurately, a nightmarish quality of scenes not quite transitioning together properly. But that's the point, as the characters indicate. They know something's not right. Things aren't happening as they should. Something is deeply wrong with the fabric of reality. And Morrison and Jones simulate that not only with puzzled characters, but with awkward leaps from one scene to the next. It creates for a jam-packed puzzle of a story, and even though it's all setting up the inevitable confrontation as the forces of good rally against the forces of evil, it's much messier than a typical gathering of superfolk. Because evil has already won, and the heroes are barely starting to figure that out."

Otherwise known as the review in which I feel like I somehow need to defend the quality of the best-selling DC comic of the year.
